Ted Cruz And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Team Up To Ban Lawmakers From Lobbying

By early afternoon, Ocasio-Cortez said she would co-lead a bill with Cruz — if there were no „partisan snuck-in clauses, no poison pills.“

Cruz, who has previously argued with the freshman Democrat on Twitter, agreed.

At least one politician from each side of the aisle came forward to support their pact: Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, tweeted, „IN,“ and Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, offered to lead or co-sponsor a bill in the House.
